Apple's Galore~!

Yesterday Dave , Tracie my daughter and grandson Ben and I went to Gays Mills, Wisconsin to the apple orchards.. There were a lot of orchards to see. I was surprised to see that the apple trees are not very big.. But they were loaded.with lots of apples.
     We stopped at this one market and went inside. Ben was so excited.  We looked around and then decided we needed a cart to put our apples into so we could buy them.  There was this one area where we could sample all the types of apples that were on sale. Ben liked the Honey Crisp apple the best. Of course they were the most expensive.. But Tracie and I shared the cost and bought one bag.. He has his arm around the bag of apples we bought..

After we bought our apples we went outside and saw this display of  swings made out of rubber tires.. There were tractors and horses.. Ben liked the tractor the best.  A little girl came by with her family and they were swinging and their tractors collided.. They thought this was so fun. So they had a tractor collision each time they went back and forth.. with their swinging.
There were a lot of people there today beings it was a really nice day.. I don't think it got up to 70 today.The last week-end of Sept. will be their Apple Festival. I can't imagine being there at that time.  Lots of traffic and lots of long lines to buy your apples..

There was an area where they had huge pumpkin patches and along side the edge of the patches were these pumpkin people.. Ben thought this one was pretty funny.  He said "It's a bad guy".. look he stole the money."  So of course we had to get a picture.

He loves to roll down the hills . He must of rolled down this hill at least 20 times.. Sometimes he would get up and be so dizzy.. He would laugh and laugh and go right back up and do it again.. Made me dizzy just watching him..

Here we are in the car going home.. Within 15 minutes he was asleep.. I just love to see sleeping children.. They look so sweet. I love Ben's blond hair. It"s so white.. We had a great day and Ben had a 2 hour nap.. I asked him if he wanted to go to the Apple Orchard tomorrow and he said "GranAnnie it's too far to ride in the car".. "Not tomorrow maybe another day"..
Have a great day~!  ta ta for now from Iowa:)

I love to peel one take out the core and microwave for 4 minutes.. Yum Yum baked apple and it's hot.. taste so good in the fall. I don't use sugar . the apple has enough natural sugar to make it sweet..
